My best steering thing was a sega gamepad, well, had two of them.... pads rules... I had that big black one with 3 buttons and the tiny redish one.. will look up pictures...
all the joysticks I gave away.
The left one and a similar version of the 3 buttoned top left one, next to the far left one
. (maybe it was exactly that 3 buttoned one I had.... don't remember exactly...)
